FIFA WORLD CUP
Brasil vs Croatia 3:1


The opening match of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil was last night full of action and controversy. The hosts and favourites Brazil played Croatia in Sao Paulo and after taking the lead Croatia eventually lost 3 -1 after a dubious penalty decision by the Japanese referee Yuichi Nishimura.

Croatian national football team coach Niko Kovac was very happy with the performance of his players at the World Cup opening match despite the defeat of 1-3 to Brazil. "It was a shame what the referee decided was worthy of a penalty. I've watched the video right after the match and if that was a penalty, then let us play basketball," Niko Kovac has commented. "The referee was not on the level of such a match. This was a robbery," the coach has concluded. He added he was proud of his team and wants to turn to upcoming matches against Cameroon and Mexico. "I still believe we can reach the next round", says Niko Kovac.

FLOODS IN CROATIA
Vesna Pusic: Croatia will seek assistance from the EU .
ZAGREB: Croatian Foreign Minister Vesna Pusic has revealed the country might ask help from the EU to fight consequences of heavy floods that hit eastern part of the country. Vesna Pusic revealed Croatia was able to intervene immediately but "will need help later when solving the consequences of the flood".

A number of Croatian political parties have decided to stop their promotional activities prior to European Parliament Elections and to give the spare money towards helping the floods in areas in eastern region of Slavonia. The leading leftist Kukuriku coalition was the first to decide so, and then opposition parties Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) and Hrvatski Laburisti announced they would also do the same.
At least one person died and two went missing when heavy floods hit Slavonia. It is believed that homes belonging to 15,000 people were in danger of flood damage. The catastrophic situation also hit neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia where dozens of people have died.
